7 best high-neck dresses to wear this autumn – Stylist Magazine
October 6, 2020 - Party Maxi Dress
Just because summer is over doesn’t mean we have to wave goodbye to dresses. It’s quite the opposite, in fact. Dresses are an essential part of any autumn wardrobe – from the new knit style already approved by fashion editors, to the satin dresses which will put you at your sartorial best, with no effort needed. The humble dress has a place in your wardrobe all year round and this time we’re backing a forever favourite: the high-neck dress.
The high-neck is universally flattering, whether you prefer mini, midi or maxi styles (we’ll show you ways to style them all below) the high-neck will work as part of your everyday uniform.
The high-neck mini
Fashion influencer Alyssa, for example, gives a lesson in how to take the mini dress into autumn territory. First reach for a high-neck version, pair it with knee-high boots and complete the look with a classic accessory like the Chanel bag. Okay, we can dream of the Chanel but any bag to compliment this fail-safe look.
The high-neck midi
We haven’t met a midi dress we don’t like – from collared to square-neck and belted, they’re easy to wear across all seasons and occasions. Now the temperature has dropped, the roll-neck knitted dress is a hero item to rely on. Keep it off-duty like model Adhel Bol (above) with a classic tailored coat and box-fresh kicks. They also look so good with stomper boots.
The high-neck maxi
Make like model Halima Aden and wear a long high-neck dress for the winter months. The longer length gives an effortlessly chic edge with no effort needed. Dress it up with strappy heels and down with chunky Chelsea boots for daytime attire.
Whether you’re a mini, midi or maxi dress fan, we’ve found the best high-neck dresses to shop now.
